As an avid reader of fantasy, sometimes it's hard to try someone new rather than re-reading books I love, but I'm so glad I opened this book.
The first character you meet, Catrin, is a strong female lead. It doesn't take long to get to know who she is. Other key characters are introduced quickly and fleshed out without taking the reader out of the story. In fact, it didn't take long for me to get into the story to the point where I didn't want to put it down.
Catrin is a seemingly normal young woman, but the reader soon learns that there's more to her than she or anyone else realizes. Times are changing (as they tend to do) in the world of Godsland and dire consequences have been prophesied. Unknown powers find her and she has no idea what to do with them. Add to that the threat of invasion and people hunting her and you have one stressed out young woman. ;)
The people who surround Catrin are interesting and well developed. They don't cater to her, but treat her as a real person, which is nice to find.
The adventure and danger are exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat, ready for more. My biggest complaint about this story was reaching the end and having to wait for the next book to load. ;)
